“Flex Your Rights” Presentation at Keene State College – Full Video

September 11th, 2016 - 12:49pm by FTL_Ian in

I had the pleasure this week of seeing James Carroll of Flex Your Rights give a presentation to a couple dozen students at Keene State College. He covered various aspects of how to handle encounters with police and encouraged not taking a plea deal and going to trial rather than just paying fines.

After his presentation, I interviewed him about his formative experiences here in Keene and he cited Keene Cop Block , Free Keene TV , and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition speaker and jail superintendent Rick Van Wickler as influences in becoming the effective, full-time, professional activist he is today. Here’s...

September 10th, 2016 - 2:13pm by FTL_Admin in

On Sunday night we interviewed Riccardo Spagni , the head developer for Monero , the anonymous cryptocurrency that has exploded in popularity and price in recent weeks.

If you have altcoins you'd like to donate, you can do that here and they'll automagically be converted into Monero and donated to Free Talk Live!

Also, bitcoin AMPing is back, so if you've been waiting on that option before you AMP the show, your wait is over. To AMP the show with bitcoin , just choose the pre-paid AMP option when you choose your AMP level. Thank you!

Freeman Rated as Top Democrat for Governor by NH Firearms Coalition & Granite State Taxpayers

September 6th, 2016 - 11:22am by FTL_Ian in

New Hampshire Firearms Coalition Rated A

I’m the only democrat for governor to receive an A rating by the NH Firearms Coalition!

Though sidelined by much of the NH mainstream media , my campaign has not been ignored by various interest groups across New Hampshire. I’ve responded to a bunch of candidate questionnaires thus far, more than I was sent in 2014. As a result my campaign spending has increased from about $2.50 last year to just over $5.00 here in 2016. Some of the results are in!


New Hampshire’s Amazing, Unmatched Bitcoin Community

Manchester, NH Bitcoin Meetup

Manchester, NH Bitcoin Meetup

It’s not a coincidence that New Hampshire has arguably the highest concentration of bitcoin and crypto-friendly people anywhere. For more than a decade there have been active migrations of libertarian, voluntarist, and liberty anarchists moving to New Hampshire. Many of these movers are activists who are into...

Andover Beacon Delivering NH Liberty Party Candidate Statement to All Households

September 2nd, 2016 - 12:00pm by FTL_Ian in

Andover Beacon LogoI’m grateful to the staff of the Andover Beacon , a monthly local paper delivered to all households in Andover, NH. Thank you for inviting me to prepare a 250 word statement that is being included in their voter’s guide that is being delivered to mailboxes today! They asked me to talk about some key issues. Here’s the statement:

The biggest issue in New Hampshire today is drug abuse and the solution is simple – end prohibition. We know from history that prohibition is a failure and only makes the problems with addiction worse. Jailing and forcing addicts into treatment is not compassion. Prohibition should be ended for all drugs and addicts will feel safer to...

Bitcoin AMPing is Back!

August 30th, 2016 - 10:58pm by FTL_Admin in

As you may be aware, a few months ago Coinbase decided they no longer wished to do business with me (and therefore Free Talk Live). All our bitcoin monthly AMPs were therefore canceled, sadly, and our bitcoin option was no longer working on our site. Good news! Should you wish to AMP via bitcoin, you can now do so again, but only via prepaid subscription. Only coinbase allowed the monthly payments, so that option is no longer available.

We're using Mycelium payments so there's no middleman this time, which means you'll need to select "X months pay up front" when you are choosing your AMP level to have bitcoin as a checkout option. You can sign up for AMP here .

In other news, our occasional co-host Bud is trying to raise money to remove a swastika tattoo from his arm. So far, he's raised $65 in USD and $10 in bitcoin. Please watch his video and read more about the fundraiser at http...

Reason’s Nick Gillespie: “Move to New Hampshire, you won’t be sorry!”

August 22nd, 2016 - 11:01pm by FTL_Ian in

Reason LogoReason Magazine’s Nick Gillespie recently sat down with FSP president Matt Philips to discuss the Free State Project’s libertarian migration-in-progress to New Hampshire. Gillespie has seen the evidence for himself – he’s visited the Shire on more than one occasion. It’s obvious that concentrating libertarian activists together in the same geographic area leads to success.

Now thousands more are slated to come for the FSP, while others are choosing to join the decentralized Shire Society and move independently of the Free State Project. Regardless of whether you join a movement or not, if you are a libertarian or voluntarist, take Nick’s...
